rubio's new proposal that would give legal status to millions of immigrants. headlined -- marco rubio, riding to the immigration rescue. his proposal would say illegal immigrants would have to pay a fine, pay back tax do community service, prove they have been here for an extended period of time. understand some english and become assimilated. most of them would get legal stat us and be allowed to stay in the country. congressman paul ryan is weighing in. he wrote this on his facebook page. senator rubio is exactly right on the immediate to fix our broken immigration system. i support the principle he's outlined. modernization of our immigration law, stronger security to curb illegal immigration and respect important the rule of law in addressing the complex challenge of the undocumented population. eagerness to jump onboard is bipartisan. majority leader harry reid describing the prospects for immigration reform in the months ahead. >> it is going to be first thing on our agenda. the -- majority, every senate, lists their top ten items. immigration is the number one item. we are goin
like marco rubio, for instance, and others, and also you have the chamber of commerce, you have some republican vested interest. i would say the budget and immigration are the two areas, spending and immigration. >> can he get through some simple things on gun control, if not a ban on assault weapons. that might be impossible with republican caucus, but universal background checks? some smaller things that polls show most republicans around the country support. >> yeah, maybe. i don't know. i would support it. i can't speak for the others. i would think there is a chance that maybe on gun trafficking some things and it may be watered down somewhat, but he could at least make some progress. there could be a bill signing and you get people together and that could make it better for the next year and a half after that. >> i want to ask you something i know that seems unrelated but it is very important for the president. it's on foreign policy but it's on what's happening now in north africa. we had benghazi and now algeria and northern mali with the french. does he need to do more with
. there are republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. martha: ric chris wallace tphoeupbs mnow, anchor. i want to talk to you a little bit about the immigration issue. when i hear about marco rubio and see when he's working on now, you can't help but look forward. he had this idea about immigration before the president came out with his plan and mitt romney had ten opportunity to sign onto it. now condoleezzaa rice seems to be saying, we have to learn some lessons from the last election, the g.o.p. does in terms of how they treat this issue. >> absolutely. i mean look at the exit polls, 71% of hispanics, hiss are the fastest growing demographic to america and 71% of them voted for obama. back eight years prior to that in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of hispanics. romney continue even get 30%. that is the difference in a state like florida, and a a bunch much other states around the country. republicans have got to find way to say to hispanics that we are on your side, we welcome you, value you, and
by the extreme elements in the party. we now -- in that party. marco rubio is out there saying he wants a comprehensive immigration reform. paul ryan, no dummy on this issue, having run as mitt romney's running mate, is coming out in support of the rubio plan. will they be able to get the party extremists to embrace what they're proposing, whatever that is? >> that's such a great question. i think -- i have yet to see really marco rubio's proposal in writing. he has been talking about some concepts, whether, you know, he supports some aspects of immigration reform, but i think i would rather wait until he has something in writing, which i have yet to see. there is some problem. for example, in the house los angeles times has been reporting on this. we at telemundo report on it quite frequently. there is a small group of democrats and republicans working together to try and reach some bipartisan agreement on comprehensive immigration reform. let's remember that the 11 million people that are here illegally aren't just latinos. there are some aryan blonde, blue-eyed people that are undocu
it in 2012 unless they get on the right side of this. i think marco rubio is trying to present that side of it. i think the republicans are going to figure out a way to compromise. i just don't think they can afford to be out on the wing and against it and they're going to have to figure that out. here and on guns. >> explains why marco rubio has been on conservative media all week trying to sell it. >> we did a question just for legal or not legal. there has to be a lot of stuff in place. border security and a lot of other things in place before you get to the legal citizenship question. >> a lot to this poll. like i said, we're spacing it out. we have different questions we're releasing next week on fascinating social movements on some big social issues we've been tracking over the years. thank you both. >> thank you, chuck. >> the gaggle will be here next talking about second inaugurals and the toll the first term has taken on the president. first the final white house soup of the day for the first term, cajun gumbo. fridays you notice, always a fish soup of some sort. we'll be right
immigration? what would you like to see happen? marco rubio on the republican side has already laid out his plan. what's your reaction to what rubio is propose and what you want to see come out of the white house? >>. >> he loud a path to citizenship for dreamers, and i think that's essential. andrea, i think the main debate will be about legalization and specifically how do you legalize folks. you can have everything from guest and residenty, and that will be the debate in congress in the coming year. >> coming up, are you also going to be faced almost immediately with the whole crisis over the debt ceiling. not house has been holding really firm. what do you think about coming into this partisan divide coming up here in congress? >> well, i mean, i hope to be part of a freshman class and a group of folks in congress who can take care of the finances and systems without creating more self-inflicted wounds. we know that last time we went through this it hurt the stock market nationally. it hurt our bond ratings. we have to create something that doesn't create this self-inflicted wound every
that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telling me privately he thinks it's much more likely that the president will not get a ban on assault weapons. but, instead, will get something that's less controversial like a national background check, having a system like that. that's more likely to go through, bill. >> bill: ed, thank you. ed henry at the white house tonight. victims and first responders have returned to the scene of the massacre in colorado. this after almost six months after a man opened fire inside of a crowded movie theater there they were attending a private ceremony at this hour. that includes the showing of a movie inside the very same building whe
with marco rubio on immigration. >> the interesting thing about political capital is mandates that what you create as the president. you can create more and grow more if you do well and if the economy comes back. there's a wild card here and it's iran. nobody needs to forget that iran will be major issue president obama will have have to wrestle with. >> i want to thank you. we also have breaking news now. you can almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. the ravens beat the new england patriots for the afc championship and are heading to the super bowl. they set the stage for history making match up. jim played quarterback for a string of nfl teams. it's the first time in history this has happened so brother on brother match up is clear to be a story line in the lead up to the game. we'll have a lot more coming up. more inauguration coverage ahead. let us know what you think. follow me on twitter right now. i'll be tweeting tonight. next, how has president obama changed the country and how has washington changed the president? is this the same man who he was four years ago? [ male announce
but of course violence control. and marco rubio has been weighing in on the government's proposals. >> what they proposed today will not affect anything that has happened in any of those places. >> i'm wondering if this is a bit of a problem, chip, as some other issues have been for republicans in the past that you have to talk like that if you want to get the nomination. it's going to be a little bit more difficult when you get to the general election. >> they're pretty tough words no question. right now like we said, we are a long way away from that. but there's another way, i think we can talk about the issues, talk about what we would do, and not be negative. i this that's the pathway to take. >> so you think chris christie is being smarter on this? >> i think they have all got to take their own path, but talk about what we believe and why we're standing up for our second amendment rights. >> we talked a little bit about hillary clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun under
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
and implication and marco rubio made the point on my radio show today, the implication is you don't sign onto the president's proposals, you somehow are not treating the children or standing behind him with due respect. that's what i find offensive. that's the implicit message here. these children are with me. are you against the children? and that's where i think-- >> i think he's originally right when he said that kids really shouldn't be part of the political discussion. leave, now, kids out of it. >> the whole gun control debate has fired up everybody, but the president said today, if i quote him correctly, that anyone who disagrees new gun law opponents want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue. is there room for a fear disagreeing with the president or some of the things he did not all of them, is there room with this president? >> i don't think so. he talked about the republican friendly media the other day. obviously, he's talking about talk radio and maybe fox and other websites. this is what he routinely does. rather than have a real conversation, and say, look, i think there
look at immigration, as marco rubio is suggesting?>> i tnk bh parties take a fresh look at immigration because you can't just focus on that, and i applaud senator rubio for trying to find a way particularly to address issues with children who are caught up in some of the immigration debate. andrea, until we secure the borders and we actually find ways to enforce the current laws that are on the books with an understaffed and underfunded ice, immigrations and customs enforcement agency, i think it's hard to get to the final step, and that is pathways to citizenship, and i think all these things are part of a solution. look, i favor vastly more legal immigration. what we don't want is more illegal immigration, and neither do people that are here lawfully who have come from other countries. my grandfather came lawfully 100 years ago. we need more of that. we have an arbitrary number of guest worker permits. we need to increase those to meet the economic needs of the country. i think you have to talk about all of these together. for the republican party we've got to make sure we know that
marco rubio, hispanic from florida. we have african-american senator tim scott, just appointed. 24s pretty good stuff. >> it is. >> the question is if you did so well on the diversity issues at the state level for these gubernatorial and senate races why can't you get it done at the presidential level? >> well, the presidential level is a little different thing that i'm in charge of at the house level, but we had 21 women candidates and incumbents, all of whom the democrats targeted and replaced with men. you know, we have done a pretty good job, but not as good as we can do at recruitment. we lost african-american candidates and incumbents like allen west and mia love out in utah. so we've got our work to do, but we've had some terrific candidates. we've got terrific members now. we need to listen and learn and do a better job of communicating to get at the issues you're talking about, larry, which is what all americans want. it's a better economy. how do you have a president, as you talked about, that has a jobs council that only meets once? >> i know. it's xwroerd. >> come on. >>
on the hill. what we see is a lot of immigration reform and bipartisan, marco rubio introduced his plan endorsed by representative paul ryan in the house. seeing a build between the house and republicans, between the house republican, excuse me, and the senate democrats, on immigration reform. that's a ticket item we could definitely see him pass. >> house republican, senate democrats. here's the deal, amy. when the president started out four years ago, he controlled, democrats had control of both houses. so how much does that change his approach to trying to check off this wish list? it's not that way anymore. >> no, it's not. compromise is the name of the game. he's seeing that republicans want to compromise on certain issues. with gun control, you're hearing certain republicans talk about background checks. a willingness to do that, also some parts of immigration. i don't know if it's going to be some grand, sweeping deal, but, you know, republicans suffering a loss with the hispanic vote want to see that happen. i think if they can find middle ground on these issues he can have a su
? >> you're already seeing a lot of this immigration reform push with senator marco rubio taking the lead on that, but you're seeing paul ryan join up and the chamber of commerce is starting to get onboard with whatever that republican proposal will be. so i think that that can end up being a moment of unity for everyone and it's possible and there's always rancor in washington. >> there's concern about how they talk about these issues and getting to understand certain things they do and say will be interpreted differently especially by spanish-speaking hispanics and those that are willing to vote republican. >> even the decisions to stop using the word rape, you know? you would think that at some point this is something that members alone would have come to the conclusion of. kristin a thank you very much. ed o'keefe, thank you. do wear your glasses on the air next. they'll become part of your new look. >> there you go. >> excellent! >>> from the city of angels to washington, d.c., coming up, the mayor of los angeles will join us to talk about what christina said was the future of immigr
is good and important for our country. legal immigration needs to really be modernized. marco rubio is working on that we need to find ways. we are educating so many people and then telling them to leave the country who are from other countries, go back, with he don't want you here. we have issues of labor that we need additional labor. we need to deal with immigration and i think we will, candy. >> quickly, you're on the committee that will listen to testimony from secretary of state hillary clinton this week on benghazi and what she knew about it. what else -- we know that there was a breakdown somehow in getting appropriate security to benghazi. what else do you need to know? >> the president promised right when this happened that people would be brought to justice. where is the justice? >> they did fire -- there were people punished in at the state department what else do you want? >> i have seen the videos and the surveillance cameras and things from the drones. there were people, terrorists who came into essentially u.s. ter toe, our backers our consulate and murdered american
something which may be against his nature and try to reach out to republicans, work with maybe marco rubio on immigration, and try to have a real legacy. >> i think your former boss saying, i have political capital to spend and i'm going to spend it. do you see the same for president obama? >> i do. and the interesting thing is, mandates are that which you create as the president. you can create more and do more if you do well. if the economy comes back and you can convince people to come with you. but there's a major issue, iran. iran is an issue the president is going to have to wrestle with in a serious way. >>> we have breaking news now, can you almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. because just moments ago, the ravens beat the patriots and are heading to the super bowl. the 49ers inched out theoppon t theopponents for the trip to the super bowl. jim harbaugh played for a string of nfl teams. he followed in the foot i steps of his father. it's the first time in history this has happened, so the brother on brother matchup is clear to be a heavy story line in a leadup to the game. w

, on immigration reform, which is another subject close to your heart. you saw marco rubio, the senator from florida's proposals, are you on board with him? >> he's making progress. i salute him for that. he's got the courage to taken o his own caucus and say, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we need a pathway for citizenship. there's probably a difference of opinion on how long it takes to earn that legalized pathway to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders.

important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to
, not necessarily become citizens, but say here legally. host: where is that coming from? caller: marco rubio has put forward a plan that has put on the table but that decision. that is pretty big, and house republicans have their own plans. now, president obama has his own plan that we will hear about sin and that will look like a lot like the plan that democrats cannot with a few years ago, and it is less likely that democrats will embrace that. side is that eatch talking about it suggests to me that they can come together in the next congress, and one of the big reasons is the political ones. republicans did not do very well in this election and they felt like if they were able to do better in this group they would have a better chance of winning. they feel like that they cannot completely abandon hispanics. a huge issue. host: when you look at the lineup of the senate, you have marked rubio putting up legislation, and then jeff flake from arizona, and more democrats as well. guest: the politics are changing fundamentally and quickly. republicans work really shaken up by the demographics of th
in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and -- ifnder truth-o-meter it is a factual claim, we will check it. where
reform -- when you have barack obama and senator marco rubio essentially in a similar place on immigration reform, i think you're going to get that. >> does the clock run out mid 2014? >> well, i think the record here is about a two-year kind of runway. that sounds about right to me. >> i think it's going to be shorter than that to be honest. let's not forget the fiscal issues and budget issues. he has 30 seconds before he has to sort of dive into those again. the next six months are really going to be full. >> cluck gabriel, sort of the same question to you. the rule of thumb is that the president has about 18 months to get his second term agenda underway and rolling and of course we know that an awful lot of presidential second terms have been marred by either major slips or scandals that impede the attainment of those lofty goals. >> i think 18 months is probably generous, tyler. but, you know, if he essentially does move out quickly on gun control and immigration, you know, immigration is a real wedge issue. that's an issue that democrats really have the potential to rea
based on what senator marco rubio of florida, republican, has put out there. he's put some ideas out there. do you -- do you endorse liz ideas? guest: i have not spoken to senator rubio yet, but we welcome those ideas. there are others in the house that are working on specific proposals and wider ranging proposals, and we want to take a look at this. you know, we are a nation of immigrants. there is not a person to be found who's a u.s. citizen who can't go back a few generations or several generations and find someone in their family who came to the united states to better their lives. my grandfather came from germany. my wife's parents came from ireland. this is a very, very common thing. we are also a nation of laws. so finding a way to address this issue and fix a very broken immigration system will entail looking at a lot of different pieces of this, including enforcement and what you do with the millions of people who are not lawfully in the united states today. so we're willing to look at all those things and see what kind of common ground we can find. we're prepared to see ho
that in the elections. i mean, it was pretty clear. >> yeah, well, in speaking of elections marco rubio senator from florida is going to be a pivotal figure in any discussion about immigration in this country. "the washington post" editorial board writes about senator rubio's efforts at immigration reform saying, quote, the center piece of mr. rubio's plan, a pathway to citizenship with stages, is new for him. as a candidate for the senate in 2010, he denounced amnesty for immigrants without papers. his position now labels not with standing represents a shift. it also requires guts. mr. rubio one of just three hispanics in the senate has made clear he is willing to lead. the question in the coming months is whether his party's main stream in congress, in state capitals, can be coaxed toward moderation. what does senator rubio do about his colleagues over in the house of representatives? >> well, he is a key player and he is willing to work in coalition. i mean, right now in washington that is the key issue. are you willing to get over that one single threshold of working in coalition? do you think t
of the year you could see a deal coming together. you have to watch marco rubio. if he comes out to an eventual pathway to citizenship, and you're going to go through a whole bunch of obstacles, payments, but if he ultimately supports is, you can get a deal. >> it's in his initial plan. >> what about five years ago though? george w. bush the president of the united states supported immigration reform and he got absolutely rolled by republicans in the house and the senate. marco rubio doesn't have the power to make a republican from iowa support this. >> he might. >> no, he doesn't. >> he's one of the few republicans who's conservative enough he can get people to change their habits. if you don't, the numbers will kill them. you can't leave the fastest growing group in america in perpetuity. texas politics are in the different today. four years, eight years, they're radically different. if you look at the growth of hispanic in texas, you have the five largest cities. they're all moving to the middle largely because you have growing minority populations. the cou

republicans looking back at the last election are having a big rethink of their policy and marco rubio has stepped forward and is trying to forge a middle ground on immigration. barack obama has a choice, he can take a maximalist position and try and use immigration like he's used other issues to drive a wedge between republicans ab hispanics or reach out to rubio the way na george bush reached out to ted kennedy and forged a major bipartisan effort on immigration, and this is a major test for barack obama and we'll see if he's the post partisan president he promises to be or not. >> megyn: good debate and good to see you both. >> thanks, megyn. >> new. >> megyn: take a look at this picture, the three men behind three recent horrifying awful mass shootings. up next, dr. keith ablow on mental health and why have we heard so little about it during the the big reveal from the white house yesterday. and, this story, the story is mind blowing, i don't follow football, i don't follow college football, but this guy is a huge star for notre dame football. his story his grandma tied and girlfriend
potential for a compromise bill being fashioned in the u.s. senate. marco rubio who -- who's saying some things similar to what democrats are saying on immigration reform. you have people like john mccain who has a history of supporting immigration reform. so you can see some potential for a compromise between the senate and the white house. and then gets passed to the house where the politics are much trickier because it's controlled by republicans. but i think that's an area where, you know, if you had to -- if you were optimistic about one issue that got solved this year on the president's agenda, then immigration would be at the top of the list. not easy, but there's potential for compromise. >> ryan, last chance -- a little something for the viewers, a little sing, gospel? >> no. believe me, you don't want that. >> all right. another day, another time. thank you. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >>> now that lance armstrong has admitted to cheating, a lot of people want their money back. if they're successful, guess what, he might be left with nothing. overmany discounts to thin
